Things That You And Your Spouse Need To Discuss Before Or Soon After You're Married

Claire Roberts

As you and your soon-to-be spouse are preparing for marriage, or right after you are married, there are some things that are very important to discuss. These are issues that will affect your future, and they require careful planning in order to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible for the two of you. This article will talk about some things that you and your spouse need to discuss before or soon after you're married. 

Family Planning

Kids are a wonderful blessing in each family, but it is important to make sure that they come at the right time. In order to plan your family from the beginning, you need to discuss if you want to use any type of birth control or other contraceptive method, such as condoms. When used properly, these tools will allow you to avoid getting pregnant, while still having intercourse. Then, when the two of you decide that you are ready to have children, these birth control methods can be removed, and you can begin to try to have children. 

Also, several years down the road when you are done having children, you can discuss how you would like to prevent getting pregnant. This can be done if the husband gets a vasectomy or if the woman gets her tubes tied. It is important to discuss this soon after you are married though, so you have a tentative plan in your head of what is going to happen.

Financial Planning

Another very important aspect of marriage that needs be discussed is your finances. Whereas before you were simply used to handling your own money for your own needs, you now need to think for two people. You will discuss your combined potential incomes, and how you are going to budget all of the money that comes in. This will help you to get an idea of how much money you will be be able to make within each month, or even each year, and how to plan accordingly.

You should also discuss what type of schooling the two of you would like to complete, as well as your overall career goals because you will be able to factor in the cost of schooling vs. the potential income that this schooling will bring in when completed. You can also discuss whether or not the wife will continue working after you have children, so that you know if you need to put money in savings for that time.
